1/35 scale printable parts, snap fit assembly, no glue required. Figure height: approx. 2 inch / 5 cm
The parts come in pre-supported Chitubox files and STL file format (for all other printers, SLA, DLP and FDM).
We highly recommend to choose SLA or DLP printers!
FDM prints usually do not show the very fine detail, unless you scale up the parts
For SLA/DLP printers, we highly recommend to use the Resione M58 resin. Resione M58
For near perfect prints, use the following settings:
For transparent glass parts, use Resione G217 transparent clear resin: Resione G217 with a layer exposure time of 4 seconds. After post UV curing, submerge the transparent parts in a cup of hot water for about 5 minutes to reduce the yellowing effect. To receive full transparency and a clear and glossy glass effect, apply at least one layer of glossy clear coat with airbrush.
Wash the parts in IPA (70%-99%) for 20 minutes. UV post cure the parts for 20 minutes.
Assemble the parts after curing, to avoid dusting/powdering of the resin surface!
If you prefer a tight fit and don't want to exchange parts after assembly, you can use a 5.0 seconds layer exposure time. If you prefer less tight fit for ongoing parts exchange, you can use a 4.0 seconds layer exposure time.
The joint fits are quite tight in the beginning, so make sure to wiggle the parts together slowly and carefully to avoid breaking parts. Should you still struggle to assemble the snap fit joints, place the parts in hot water for 30 seconds to soften them a bit, then assemble. Some printed resin tends to shrink over time (the process can go on several weeks after print) until it has fully settled it's properties. If the joints come loose, use small portions of modelling clay, like super sculpey to fill in the gaps.
